'Nightmare' Hurricane Florence Poses Far-Reaching Dangers

NASA Commemorates 9/11 with New

"This photo shows the enormous size of Hurricane Florence, taken with a wide-angle lens from the International Space Station, almost 250 miles directly above the eye of the storm", they tweeted.

The video was taken on Tuesday as Florence churned across the Atlantic in a west-northwesterly direction with winds of 130 miles per hour.

Viewed through the wide-angle camera of the International Space Station which orbits at 250 miles (400 kilometers) above Earth, Hurricane Florence appears swirling above the Atlantic Ocean as it's moving west-northwest towards the North and SC.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) — Hurricane Florence put a corridor of more than 10 million people in the crosshairs Wednesday as the monster storm closed in on the Carolinas, uncertainty over its projected path spreading worry across a widening swath of the Southeast. The NHC said this might bring widespread and potentially catastrophic flooding far inland, and forecasters predict Florence may dump several feet of rain on some areas of the East Coast.

Florence has been forecast to make a direct hit on two nuclear power plants in North Carolina. Governors in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia have issued mandatory evacuations and lane reversals.

On Wednesday morning, Florence was extending hurricane-force winds outward up to 70 miles from its center, with tropical-storm-force winds up to 175 miles outward.

The threat has sparked a rush of evacuation efforts in SC and North Carolina, with more than 1 million people urged to get out of Florence's way.

Emergency preparations in SC now include more than 2,100 of the state's National Guard soldiers.

US President Donald Trump on Twitter warned of the storm's dangers and praised his administration's handling of past hurricanes, rejecting criticism for its response to Hurricane Maria previous year in Puerto Rico.

Speaking about the Wilmington area and its surrounding beaches in North Carolina, a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) official said the inland flooding threat was "extreme".

NOAA Hurricane Hunters have been flying constantly from Lakeland Linder International Airport, right into Hurricane Florence.

Elsewhere in the Atlantic basin, Tropical Storm Isaac will strike the islands of the Lesser Antilles, with Guadeloupe, Dominica and Martinique under a tropical storm warning.
